I'm on RH EL 5.0, is that not the Distribution. Not that au fait with Linux terminology ie. flavours etc.
[root@moran /]# yum install make
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
rhel-i386-server-5 100% |=========================| 1.4 kB 00:00
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Package make - 1:3.81-3.el5.i386 is already installed.
Nothing to do
The thing with that "gmake-3.80p0.tqz"
is that is didn't seem to create a folder called 'gmake-3.80p0' once I had unzipped and untarred the .tqz.
I'll get exactly what it did and dump here to show you (now appended).
When I search in tmp no 'gmake-3.80p0' dir has been created (this is what I'm used to see happening, and then I head in there and then run any resultant configure.sh, make,...etc.
Is this some weirdo special type exception to the norm package?
